  • Hello All, I am new to the group and looking for someone that can work with to us build an affordable fixed-wing drone for precision farming. Drone needs to have flight planning software as well as decent RGB and multispectral payloads. Most of the off-the-shelf platforms to expensive for our application. Please let me know if you can help.

      George, I have used one of the early Event38 E384 fixed wing drones for aerial surveying and 3D mapping of golf courses. It was very effective.

      However it was developed for agricultural monitoring and does support multi-spectral acquisition, so I suspect you would find these useful for your application. You could learn a lot from using one of these.

  • Hi All, I am interested to make contact with fellow enthusiasts in the Brisbane or SEQ area of Queensland Australia with a view of learning more about the directions, and applications drones have in the broad acre pastoral and agricultural areas of the State and Australia as a whole. I am lfrom a cattle and sheep background. Ted
  • Hi
    I'm Liam from T-MOTOR. I would like to reach out to see if there is any possibility for us to work together.
    We are a propulsion system manufacturer who offers motors, propellers and ESCs for all kinds of drone applications which vary from security, surveillance to agriculture VTOL etc.And Drone frame.

    In the same time, we hope to work with your Drones projects, pls feel free to let us know if you need any custom solution.
    If you have new project,pls contact me.I can find the most efficient power system to you.

  • Hi, I am from New Zealand and trying to understand the application of drones in agriculture. We have a lot of sheep on large extensive farms, but trying to understand how ranchers from the USA might use drone technology is very difficult from the bottom of the pacific. I have a 2 minute survey with 11 questions which would really help my project. Thank you.

  • Hello, Im Delmond Marshall, I'm new to the drone culture. I'm Head Coach of the Flint Unity Farming Project in Flint, Michigan where we teach kids how to grow vegetables they can eat that will help offset their exposure to toxins caused by the Flint Water Crisis, which is still ongoing. A news story on us is online at: vid=434367523. I'd like to introduce drones to my kids. My question is whats the most inexpensive drone with cameras can I get or have made that they could use? I have 102 kids, No way I can buy all of them drones. If I could get 5 of them for our group, I'd be happy.I'm hoping to create a drone club for them. Any ideas or suggestions please share and let me know. Check out my drone flight I posted on my Linkedin page

Open Source Drone Payload Project Supporting In-Flight AI

I'm leading a project to develop a completely open source system for deploying artificial intelligence and computer vision on a drone. We are trying to make the system as general purpose as possible, but one application would be supporting precision agricultural. The real-time, in-flight processing aspects of the payload are probably less interesting for precision AG, but the data collection and curation capabilities might be. We are getting started with a few specific missions, we are…

Ground Station for Spraying Drone

We need a GSC for a small spraying drone base on Pixhawk. It should be capable of pausing the mission whenever the tank is empty, return to launch, and after refueling or changing the battery, return to the last waypoint that the mission was paused and continue the mission. The GCS should run on android and be swarm cable (at least in the future). Could this be done in Qgroundcontroll or should I consider doing it using DroneKit or FlytOS on a companion computer? Or is there any other…
